ProQuest’s Adds Rare Texts and Debuts History Vault

By Theresa Cramer

From the Press Release:

ProQuest and London’s Wellcome Library are joining forces to expand access to the library’s rich historical treasures.  As part of its Early European Books digitization program ProQuest will be digitizing the Library’s entire holdings of European books printed before 1700, comprising more than 15,500 volumes, and will be making the collection available for free throughout the U.K. and the developing world.

In further Proquest news:

ProQuest is unlocking the rich, primary source material it acquired with University Publications of America (UPA) through a new digital archive called ProQuest History Vault. Its first three modules are being released this year and will provide researchers with a unique, unfiltered view into the Black Freedom Struggle and U.S. foreign policy during the Vietnam War era. Modules are planned to complement course curricula and these modules match two of the most widely-studied topics in 20th-century history.
